Great response to the kids. My son is 6'2" & slim. I'm 5'7" and not. I tell him that I used to be taller and thinner than he but that this is what genetics has in store for him.

Thanks for the link. After over a hundred Grateful Dead concerts and countless Who, Stones, Neil Young, and all the rest through the 70s, I was sure that I wouldn't be hearing anything.

I was shocked to have actually heard the thing.

You made my day!

Your ears are young, you lucky bastard!

They played that on the radio here, and I heard it, much to my daughter's chagrin. There's another tone that they play in shops to keep teenagers away, that only teenagers are supposed to hear. BBC got lots of calls from old geezers like me who were hearing it as well.

I don't think the technology is there yet.

What is it with you people? I couldn't hear a thing! If only BushCo gave his speeches at that frequency, I'd be a happy woman.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
